will not negotiate over whether to raise the debt limit. why don't you believe him? >> well, i don't believe him for sort of practical reasons and partly for the history of his negotiating style. the practical reason is we have a couple of things coming up that he is clearly going to negotiate over, one of which is the sequester, the automatic spending cuts that they delayed for two months when they did the fiscal cliff deal. that is going to expire late february and early march. it is hard for them to say we are going to negotiate but don't call it a debt ceiling negotiation. we'll just call it a sequester negotiation. i think that is a difference without a distinction. i think what the president demonstrated in the end of the fiscal cliff negotiation and a couple of previous negotiations is he is a guy who wants a deal even when he is holding all the cards as he was in the fiscal cliff negotiation. he is not a guy who wants to tempt fate. he doesn't like chaos. he wants to get a deal. he wants both sides leaving the table thinking they got something. he wants to prove that washington can work.

-- you certainly don't want to leave things worse than you found them. and this is, of course, much of the consternation and the stress, i suspect, of people in afghanistan feeling post-2014. what is going to be left behind? will the peace and stability hold? what about the ongoing development projects that are in that country? and that has been true going back to second world war and beyond. so put it into the context of syria. who can make the most meaningful contributions now? and the contribution doesn't have to be military. russia, i would suggest, should be called upon to step up and belly up to the u.n. security council and exert influence. they, i suggest, are the most influential at this time. and have the ability, number one, to stop supporting this regime that is slaughtering its citizens, to stop by its acquiescence standing on the sidelines and letting it happen while the rest of the world wrings its hands and sucks its teeth. >> how do we accomplish that? >> well, pause i think they can -- because i think they can exert influence in the capital of syria. i think they'r

, that was his story. he talked to folks in the room with vice president biden. biden told them, don't worry about the politics. let's go for what makes the most sense. let's not rule anything out what can get through washington and what can't. you went through the list. what was also interesting in the story is the white house, looking for ways to get around the pressure of the nra, and one of the ideas they have is go to places like walmart and other places that sell guns that actually have somewhat of a business interest in the way guns are regulated in that there's a loophole. if you buy guns at private gun shows, you don't have to get a permit for that. that would put a different pressure in the game. you already have folks coming out today, republicans saying a lot of these are nonstarters in their mind. it's going to be tough. the story basically said the white house has not ruled any of these things out. they're looking at strong measures, maybe stronger than anyone thought. >> bringing walmart on board would be a big pr approach to do it too. thank you. >>> coming up, congressman ch
want to say that as much as i enjoy my gun rights i don't totally agree with wayne lapierre. as a matter of fact, i stay out of the n.r.a. because it is more political than protecting my rights, in my opinion. but i do feel that these outleft-handish attacks on -- outland i outlandish attacks on gun owners and my enjoyment they want to get rid of assault rifles. i have to say a bolt action and se rifle are two different things. when i shoot i enjoy shooting with a semiauto so my shoulder doesn't get broke. i'm not a hunter but i do enjoy shooting. i enjoy protecting myself and having the right to but that is my responsibility. host: how do you strike the balance? clearly you are right in the second amendment rights of the constitution. caller: i was just about to get that if i own a gun i can disarm it. that was the mother's gupn that her mother killed her with. i don't put mine in a case and if i did i would be smart enough to disable it if someone couldn't use it. it is personal responsibility but i don't see the n.r.a. going after that. it is strictly that i can own my gu

, just so you don't think were picking on dod, a.i.d. is no better. as far as we can tell, they have a hard time grasping what they constructed and even where they are located. and i would ask you to go to our web site in the next month or two and you are going to see an interesting audit and the findings i believe are going to be, we are missing a number of buildings that we thought we had dealt in afghanistan. i don't know where they went, but they be they were never built. the second issue that we are facing has to do with quality assurance. it is our job at sigar to conduct oversight of the reconstruction effort, but it is also the responsibility of the agencies, the implementing agencies, to monitor the progress and to do the due diligence before you turn them over to the afghans -- government. we are unfortunately finding that agencies often, often fail to fully implement their quality assurance programs. let's go back to the kunduz garrison. we found that quality assurance process was virtually nonexistent during the first nine months of the project. the most critical nine-m

don't respect weakness. >> reporter: his defenders point out that chuck hagel valiantly in vietnam. he received two purple hearts there. knows what war is all about but his critics pipt out that was against the surge in iraq. he called it the biggest foreign policy mistake. he warned it would be the biggest foreign policy mistake since vietnam. obviously the surge turned out differently. he will face tough questions about those positions if he will take the helm at the defense department. general jenna. jenna: all ahead, thank you, jennifer. jon: for more on the controversy surrounding the president's planned picks let's bring in bret stevens, foreign affairs columnist at "wall street journal." about chuck hagel first. it is a quote that sounds familiar to you and you wrote it. before his official nomination, mr. obama may appoint mr. hagel to take a place at the pentagon. as almost score setting matter i almost hope he does. it would confirm a point i made earlier this column earlier this year, that mr. obama is not a friend of israel. >> you could hardly think of another leading cont
. there are 37 states where legislatures have told regulators they don't have to okay every excessive increase in health insurance premiums. >> one of the biggest confirmation battles could soon be here and fox news has learned that president obama has nominated chuck hagel as the next secretary of defense but his viewings on israel are a hot topic. >> whoever is nominated for secretary of defense is going to have to have a full understanding of our close relationship with our israeli allies, the iranian threat and the importance of having a robust military. whoever that is, i think will be given a thorough vetting and if hagel is nominated he will be subjected to the same kinds of review of his credentials as anyone else. >> this is in your face nomination by the president to all of us who are supportive of israel. i don't know what his management experience is regarding pentagon little if any. so i think its controversial choice. >> jamie: would hagel survive a senate hearing? let's bring in ron bongene and margie o'meara. great to see both of you. it seems like both sides of the aisle agree
to fellow republicans but that's gone by the boards. i don't see any visible evidence of republican support for their former colleague in the senate. and one of the things that's awkward about this is that we have secretary leon panetta, wht with no timetable. you have a lame duck secretary of defense, hard to make decisions, uncertainty about the future. if barney frank because the interim democratic senator from massachusetts when john kerry is confirmed as secretary of state, you've got somebody who is basically vowed to do whatever it takes to stop the hagel nomination as long as he's in the senate. the prospect is real confusion and uncertainty and the absence of effective active leadership has the department of defense, precisely at the point in time when the threatened see questions transportation of the defense budget looms in a couple of months. >> understood. thank you for your thoughts. >> thank you. >> more about former senator hagel. as we were talking just now, he's a vietnam veteran, decorated two purple hearts. he's a member of the secretary of defense policy board and cocha
choice since sort of early/mid-december and i don't think that really wavered even in the face of all this criticism that has come out. first, the president obviously believes that he's qualified. he's a decorated war veteran. in the congress, he served on the foreign relations and intelligence committees. he's co-chair of the president's intelligence advisory board. i think the president and chuck hagel formed a bond over their mutual opposition to the war in iraq. as you know, hagel opposed the surge in iraq. i should add, he opposed the surge in afghanistan, which the president himself authored. but there's one other reason that i think the president looked to chuck hagel. and that is that he believes that hagel will not necessarily just accept the advice of the generals and say "that's it." he believes he will not be intimidated by the generals. that he can stand up to the generals. and in the statement, we heard the president say today, he made it very clear that hagel is, as he put it, geared towards the guy at the bottom who is doing the fighting and the dying. and i think that

[ male announcer ] how about v8 v-fusion. a full serving of vegetables, a full serving of fruit. but what you taste is the fruit. so even you... could've had a v8. >> bret: timely tonight, we are getting ready for president obama's second inauguration, a big speech, a lot ofy moment and at times like this it's looking back at history. president obama took his ad-mile-an-hour ration for one former president to new heights. >> people have been asking me a lot about the film lincoln, and, you know,. >> is this your lincoln moment. >> well, no, look. a, i never compare myself to lincoln and b.

is the american people don't want trillion-dollar deficits as far as the eye can see. they don't want to have $20 trillion of debt on our children and our grandchildren and if the americans in congress can structure the debate and frame it in terms of we are willing to raise the debt ceiling if the president will work with us to address spending cuts, i think that's a winning political argument. >> i think it's very interesting. i am worning your take and the fact that the way that this deal was constructed over the cliff, the debt ceiling and the sequestration are bog going to happen around the same time. to me, that sets the stage -- finally -- and this is the optimist, for a big deal that takes care of both of those things. am i naive or can you imagine a scenario where the deal is done and our major fiscal issues are solved with one, big bargain? >> i feel like i am talking to john lennon. i want to imagine a perfect world where we can all win. you can protect the powerful and you can also protect the weak, protect the people. i want to see that happen. look, let's face facts. the $16 trillio

weapons to factions that are fighting the regime that are aligned with our interests or not, and if we don't do this, won't the more extreme elements in the region support the radical islamic rebels fighting assad, and our stake in syria is we want the people to prevail closer to our interests than those of the radical muslim interests, but, yet, we are not supporting them materially. there are reports from syria saying there's a fair amount of resentment on this. one fact i want to point out is al-qaeda in iraq, which is an affiliate of al-qaeda central and was a big threat in iraq, is now heavily involved in the syria con thright under the front, and one reason it's able to do that is because we took our forces out of iraq in 2011. if we had just several thousand forces there working with iraqi special operations forces, i believe we could have attenuated the growth of al-qaeda in iraq, this iraq, and its influence in syria. it's an inadvertent consequence of the removal of all american forces at the end of 2011. >> host: your book gave insight into the syria connection as you call it, g

're involved in? >> well, i don't think i can overstate how much it galvanized people. i think people saw an opening to talk about this issue that had been swept under the rugby politicians and others, neither the president nor romney talked about climate change during the election. suddenly people began to talk about the issue which was good. mayor bloomberg here, his endorsement on the president in part on climate change. so i think the storm, the prolonged drought affecting our nation's crops, they don't change everything. it doesn't mean we've won the battle but do open up the conversation from which we can begin to make the changes that we desperately need to make. >> good. well, again, we'll come back to issues around that. but let's hear the last set of predictions from governor whitman who was, of course, the head of e.p.a. under george w. bush. and also the -- prior to that the 50th governor of the state of new jersey, governor of the state of new jersey, as you will know, has more powers in the state, i think, than any other governor. it's a very important position. and now she
